Author Name: 

Second from the long-weekend's read pile - a local debut set in Queensland.

From the Blurb:

Cadet journalist Stacey McCallaghan is struggling to find anything newsworthy to report on in the small country town of Toomey. Front-page stories consist of the price of cattle and lawn bowls results, and Stacey spends more time laying out the crossword than covering actual news.

Until the first dead body turns up.

Author Information
Rowney, Katie

Katie Rowney started out as a journalist in a small country town and saw her first dead body on her second day on the job. After shifting through several community newspapers and freelancing for Fairfax, she joined the dark side as a media officer for the emergency services. Her job involved everything from evacuating towns during cyclones to trying to train firefighters not to swear during live to air interviews. She's currently a senior communications officer at a QLD university, helping engineers and scientists with no social skills share their findings with the world.
